In the past, flexible offices were, well, there is no other way to put it, dull and boring. Desks placed in white cubes, with a computer and a chair, were called ‘an office’. And maybe, if you were lucky, there was a painting on the wall. It all began when Eduard Schaepman and Jasper Bekkering walked into these cubes. The duo felt the same: this can be done differently. At the time they didn’t knew, but this was the start of a whole new flexible offices era.
Inspired by the past of his own nomadic family, Eduard dove into nomadic behavior. He learned about indigenous nomadic tribes, and wanted to share their wisdom and beauty with the world. They combined it with a great place to work, and that's how Tribes Inspiring Workplaces was born: a place where Business Nomads can work, meet and connect in an inspiring environment. Wherever the business takes them. Ever since, Jasper and Eduard have passed several milestones: follow their journey!
The seventh Amsterdam Tribes location is a special one: it's the Kingdom of Woman in the Netherlands! The location is inspired by the Mosuo and it's inside a national monument: Raamplein 1.
